"I love to explore empty, feral places: wastelands, abandoned buildings and barren pieces of scrubland. I find myself in no-mans land, unclaimed territory that, for a while anyway, I can have as my own." Since her sell out degree show at Duncan of Jordonstone College of Art, Dundee in 2005, Anna King's unique perspective on decaying structures and landscapes has been seen at various prestigious English and Scottish galleries. In June 2007 she won the inaugural Jolomo Lloyds TSB Scotland Award for landscape painting. Although she lives and works in the Scottish Borders, Anna now travels increasingly throughout Europe, looking for the expanses of cracking concrete that inspire her so much. "Once a hive of human activity, these forgotten places have no purpose left but no rules either and nature is slowly and relentlessly taking the land back."
